Before the holiday this week I was also running into failing tests on
Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst on my OS X 10.5 installation. I believe
it was trying to connect to localhost and not getting the result it
expected. I don't have the test results on me now, but I will have to
give it another try when I get back to work.

My solution to the problem was to simply use Macports to install
Catalyst and all of it's dependencies. A few things in there were a
little dated, but for the most part things looked good. It also installs
all of the Mac::Glue modules, which always seem to have test failures
and compliations problems for me as well.

Macports has both 5.8.8 and 5.10, but I'm using 5.10 as my default now,
and all is working perfectly.
